  • Summary: Onkyo has a great sounding product when it works, but it indeed has some reliability issues. I am a EE so it isn't like I am a novice with electrical engineering issues as I actually work in test engineering.

Alex, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this unit in 2010 November, so it is 3 years that I own it. Besides of having a complex setup to tune it to its user's habits, it produced a beautiful sound, but then suddenly speakers went dead. No sound coming out of speakers whatsoever.

Absolutely unreliable piece of crap

Rufust "rufust", Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: This Onkyo very expensive receiver is an absolutely unreliable piece of crap. As a practical matter, given the role this unit plays in my home theatre, the lousy customer service of Onkyo, and the best-case estimate of how long it will take to get this thing fixed (the first time),I will have to...

Crap

Len Goodman, Amazon

  • Summary: This receiver worked great out of the box for a couple months then channels cut out sound clicks out for no reason and lost connectivity to the network. I took it in for repairs twice the first time they replaced the HDMI BOARD as the said its a common problem. This did not fix anything.

Buyers Beware!!!

audiophile, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Great specs, tons of features Cons: Reliability. The receiver has a design/manufacturing flaw that causes a module to stop working after a short time and requires a retrofit. YOU have to pay for shipping to one of Onkyo authorized service centers, plus insurance.

Great Specifications But Poor Quality and Customer Service

HillbillyinMA, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the Onkyo TX-NR5008 as part of a home renovation project. I purchased in late February, but didn't deploy it until May 2011. This is my first Onkyo receiver, my previous setup was a Rotel Amp and Processor. It worked great for 8 years, but it was time to upgrade.
